Easy healthy dinner recipes

We know what you’re thinking: it’s hard to eat healthy because it takes longer to cook. But what if we told you that eating healthy dinner recipes could be…easy? Alex and I are dedicated to the idea that eating healthy food doesn’t have to take longer or be complicated. It can be pretty simple, in fact! All it takes is a little planning and a handful of go-to recipes that make healthy eating fun and delicious, not a chore!

Of course, we wrote a book dedicated to that whole idea (called Pretty Simple Cooking!). And we have hundreds of recipes online to prove that eating easy healthy dinner recipes is absolutely possible. But first, a note on healthy.

What’s an easy healthy dinner?

What’s our definition of healthy? Alex and I don’t follow any diet plan to a T. But the way we eat generally follows Mediterranean diet: lots and lots of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and healthy fats like olive oil. We’re less about calorie counts and more about nutrients and variety of veggies. Did I mention lots of and lots of vegetables? Many of the recipes you’ll find here are vegetarian or vegan, but they taste so delicious you don’t feel like you’re making any sacrifices. We hope you’ll enjoy these easy healthy dinner recipes as much as we do!

What’s our definition of easy? To us, easy means simple cooking methods and accessible ingredients. Many of the recipes below are quick recipes too: like 30 minutes or less. A few are 30 to 45 minutes but have simple cooking methods and include hands off time for cleaning up.

And now…our top easy healthy dinner recipes!
